    saw the advert for this in the snoozeletter last week.

    has anyone heard any news. (could do with winning the lottery, could buy the place then.)

    The previous owner is a family friend, think he sold it about 5 years ago though.

    I think this was the place my Dad used to take me to to buy his homebrew stuff when I was a little girl....it would regularly explode in the garage & I seem to remember hours & hours of collecting Dandilions on the back bit of Stafford Common when he decided he was going to make Dandilion wine.. ..

    Haha! :bum:

    I just remember that it was crammed full of stuff, smelt funny & anything bought in there would probably explode a few weeks later....

    It's a great shop. I will be very sad to see this shop close. The shop owner is very friendly and knowledgeable about the stuff he sells and the brewing process.

    As a result of his help I've managed to make a number of very good brews....

    My cousin who now lives in Grantham regularly visits this shop to stock up and get more advice.
